Sweet Sunday Thank You

Yeah I was back from a mini vacation and able to play along with this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch (SSSC120) Karen has another great sketch for us this week!

I didn't play along last week because we ended up with a last minute trip for hubby's work.  We went to Las Vegas to the UFC fight (my first one) then he had a conference with the folks from the UFC and I sat by the pool.  It was a great trip, except I managed to come home with a sprained ankle!  For my card this week I decided to make our thank you cards from the weekend.

Instead of circles I used octagon nesties because the UFC fights take place in an octagon (and I can honestly say I enjoyed the fights & could get hooked!)  I finally used some of my MFT die-namics - Say What die & stamp set for my Thanks.  The border along the bottoms is also an MFT die-namic - oval border chain.  The ds paper is from my old stash of SU riding hood red, the colours were picked based on the UFC colours on their website.

Please stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers blogs to see their creations and remember to link your card to Karen's blog if you play along

So when we were with the folks from the UFC I was able to meet Dana White (I know too funny) 

Thanks for stopping by

A sprained ankle? Oh NO! I hope you heal fast!
Your thank you card is fantastic, I like the bold colors and how you used octagons instead of circles!
